Abstract [en]

Peter Buckley's writings on the global factory with specific reference to the paper in this focused issue are discussed in this commentary. The commentary points to the possible vulnerabilities of the global factory as an organisational form and links these vulnerabilities to features of the governance regime that supports the global factory. The power of the global factory is not purely organisational but also political. The latter is particularly important when considering the impact of the global factory on world welfare and economic development.
